I agree. I saw him last year in Portland. Great show. Had a shiny new black guitar on stage in front of the drums. Never once picked it up. Any light you can shed on that? I'm not a guitarists and know nothing about them.

My guess is that there's nothing hugely significant to be read into it. Probably didn't pick it up because he didn't pick it up. Simple as that.

As is often the case, I was posting at the same time that pertinent information was being offered up.

What a fascinating story that got completely by me. Very sad about his half brother, and just short of hilarious that the only Robert Weir his father knew was a guitarist for the Grateful Dead. I still wonder, though, if the guitar in question here is the one mentioned in the article. Telecasters are usually light-colored, not black, although not exclusively, and you mention that it looked new, while this one obviously is not.

BryanE is most likely right about lack of significance, and indeed the Telecaster in question is a light colored one.
